Now foods is a company that sells gluten-free stuff, and this is no exception: if you have celiac this won't make you sick.
Even better, this is powdered agar agar, not flaked agar agar. That means this will last for months, if not years--although it's also easy to use too much. 1 tablespoon of the flakes = 1/2 tsp of the powder. The ratio most cooks call for is 1 cup liquid to 1 teaspoon flaked agar agar, which means 1/4 tsp of this powder to 1 cup liquid, with more added for more acidic things like orange juice.
However, agar agar doesn't gel as well as Jell-o, so don't expect to get the same results that you would for Jell-o--for that, you need Jell-o or kosher gelatin. (You can add more agar agar to add firmness; but then it starts to taste like what it is: seaweed.)
The cap design makes it easy to flip up to pour or use a spoon to measure out what you need.
The agar is a nice fine loose powder. Just what I was looking for.

Works and looks great. It's a little bit flimsy-er than I thought it would be. It doesn't feel massive in your hands so that's good.Published 10 days ago by Amazon Customer
